BREAKDOWN
 

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN:

Portrayed onscreen by Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio, and based on the unbelievable true story of one of the most famous con artists in history, Frank Abagnale Jr., Catch Me If You Can is a rousing musical set during the jet age of the 60s. Frank runs away from his unhappy home to live a life of great adventure, conning people by assuming a multitude of identities: airline pilot, doctor, and lawyer, to name a few. When the FBI catches on, Frank not only eludes capture but revels in the pursuit. A fast, rollicking musical by the creative team behind Hairspray; Catch Me If You Can tells the tale of an ingenious boy looking for his place in the world.

FRANK ABAGNALE JR

20 to 32 years old, all ethnicities male. Star presence. A youthful, handsome con artist; a master of deception and reinvention; extremely charming and magnetic. Broken by his parents’ divorce, and desperate for their reunion, Frank lives life on the run – carrying out a fantastic collision course of frenzy, charm, disillusion and undeniable showmanship. An excellent triple threat and an incredible tenor to C5. Must be able to move very, very well.

 

CARL HANRATTY

35 to 50 years old, all ethnicities male. The FBI agent leading the investigation and search for Frank Jr.; a habitual workaholic obsessed with catching Frank Jr.; behind his sardonic, tough guy exterior, Carl lives a private life of loneliness and depression; smart, funny, empathetic and moral. Excellent triple threat – must move very, very well. Baritone to G4.

FRANK ABAGNALE SR

40 to 58 years old, all ethnicities male. Frank Jr.’s father; an inspiration when it comes to swindling; desperately upbeat, he undergoes a series of progressive failures that leaves him a destitute drunk; adores his son and misses his wife – yearns for the family unit to be whole once again. 
Great actor adept at jazz vocal stylings. Smooth baritone to G#4.

 

PAULA ABAGNALE

40 to 55 years old, all ethnicities female. Frank Jr.’s gorgeous, stylish mother; met Frank Sr. in France, during the war, but has fallen out of love and is pursuing other men; not unloving, but lacks deep maternal instincts; likable with an unapologetic self-concern. Excellent triple threat with physical command and a great French accent. Mezzo w/ strong belt and mix -- A3-C5.

 

BRENDA STRONG

20 to 32 years old, all ethnicities female. A smart, hard-working young nurse. Self-possessed and finds herself falling in love with Frank Jr. Their relationship changes both of them forever. She is a source of light, love, fun and inspiration for Frank. Great actor/singer with pop belt -- G3-A5. Must move very well.

 

THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME:

Based on the Victor Hugo novel, with an Academy Award nominated score with songs from the brilliant minds behind Broadway’s Newsies, Beauty & the Beast, Pippin & Wicked, this sweeping score and powerful story create a night of magical theatre. In 15th century Paris, deformed bellringer Quasimodo yearns to explore life beyond the confines of Notre Dame. When he encounters a beautiful gypsy, his sights are set. However, she becomes the focus of several men and as they vie for her attention, an epic battle erupts begging the question — what is a man and what is a monster? Prepare to be mesmerized by the power and spectacle of this unforgettable musical.

QUASIMODO

20 to 35 years old, all ethnicities male. The deformed bell-ringer of Notre Dame. Upon his father’s death, he is left the charge of Claude Frollo who confines him to the bell tower of the famous Cathedral. Lonely but in possession of a vivid imagination that brings to life the bells and gargoyles of the Cathedral. Despite his limitations, shyness and uncertainty, he quickly befriends Esmeralda. Big-hearted, and brave when need be. A powerful actor/singer with superb physical prowess and agility. Excellent pop tenor to Bb.

 

CLAUDE FROLLO

40 to 60 years old, all ethnicities male. Archdeacon of Notre Dame Cathedral and the most powerful cleric in Paris, he is the reluctant caretaker of Quasimodo. On a mission to eradicate the city of the Roma “vermin,” while chasing the elusive and resistant Esmeralda. Calculating, manipulative, and obsessive. Excellent actor/singer with power and command. Bass to D4.

ESMERALDA

25 to 32 years old, all ethnicities female. A beautiful and free-spirited Romani woman with a keen sense of justice and morality. Compassionate and full of humanity, she yearns to see her people freed of persecution and able to endure a better life. Befriends and protects Quasimodo. Falls in love with Phoebus. Must be an excellent triple threat – this role must dance – with a great pop belt to Db.

CAPTAIN PHOEBUS DE MARTIN

30 to 40 years old, all ethnicities male. Returning to Paris after serving in the war, Phoebus takes up his new position as Captain of the Cathedral Guard. Overconfident yet charming, this handsome, strong soldier makes the ladies swoon, yet his moral compass is also strong, and he openly defies the corrupted Frollo. Excellent actor with both dramatic and comedic range and a commanding pop tenor to Ab.
